It was previously known as Google Product Search,Google Products and Froogle. The URL Froogle.com still exists, although it now redirects to the current Google Shopping platform.The service originally listed products presented by sellers for free and made its money from AdWords-based ads on the page side. However, this changed when the product was renamed Google Shopping in 2012, becoming a paid service.
